The much-heralded Semantic Web is enabled by an ability for machines to process webpages and certain data intelligently and perform better tasks on behalf of end users. Material is linked together through machine-readable statements of relationships among ideas, people, events, and places. Linked data examples are beginning to abound in the scholarly information environment, appearing from both publishers and libraries. NISO’s September 28 webinar Return on Investment (ROI) in Linking the Semantic Web (1:00 –
2:30 p.m. EDT) will showcase several such examples. Presenters will describe their motivations for investment in such projects and discuss interfaces and other early outcomes.
Registration is per site (access for one computer). NISO and NASIG members can register at the member rate. There is also a student discount.
